our people

Jan Gusich

Jan founded akhia with a simple mission—serve our clients beyond their expectations, in everything we do. With a career spanning over 40 years, she has faced gender bias and cultural disparity. In 1996, Jan created the agency as a workplace that was based on culture, values and mutual respect.

Jan passes on the lessons she’s learned throughout her career to today’s young women who still work in male-dominated environments, fight for equal pay and struggle to find female role models. Alongside her ability to speak as a woman who thrived in business, she also shares her expertise in public relations, brand development, crisis communications and cultivating agency culture.
